Tony Cascarino was on the Matt Cooper show one evening last week and he says that he heard from someone in Leeds that Grayson was going regardless if Leeds were promoted or not.

Ya my Dad told me that, but cant see LUFC getting rid of Grayson. Hope its false.

From what he said (see above) last week, I'd have thought it was inevitable that he'd had enough of the, ahem, Yorkshire way.

From what Cascarino was saying it was more  a case of Bates not being happy with how Leeds went in the second half of the season

You reckon Kenny-boy could 'convince' Roy Hodgson or Alan Curbishly to ply their trade in the West Riding?  Ay caramba!

I'm not entirely sure he'll be missed.  But sure he'll get his chance now to show us all how brilliant he has been telling us he is.

We signed Casper Smeichel from Notts County last week, he got league 2 player of the yr. Good signing imo.

Grayson had a hard job managing beckford in the 2nd half of the season, he didnt turn up for training which saw him dropped for a game, his best performances were for his own gain, because he was trying to get a transfer away. Grayson pulled a great move giving him the ego boost before bristol by giving him the captains armband to ensure he was motivated and it worked. I'll not miss him much if we can replace his goals.

Agreed Billy. I honestly think he will struggle in the top flight, but I'll be interested to see him play against the top defences. Good luck to him anyway - his goals got Leeds up and that's the most important thing - for what it's worth, as a Leeds supporter, I've no issue with him moving on!!

we need a goal scorer in.

When Beckford wasnt scoring we had trouble getting scores from anyone else.

To be fair, Becchio stood up and was counted over the second half of the season, and weighed in with a lot of goals.

But you're right - more firepower is needed. Who's the lad from Sheffield United that Leeds are after?

Not a bad game (for the neutral) to start the season off.

Be nice to Nigel now.

Have to say im disappointed with Graysons buys, he seems to think paynter will replace beckford, which i think is ludocrious, but hope im wrong. I thought he'd go for bigger names. Pity he didnt get eustace who was brilliant for watford last night. Snodgrass is injured, Gradel is suspended and Kinorsbo is njured, so hopefuly the new lads will have gelled.

Great to be back in the championship, never thought i have to say those words. Derby today at 5.15 live on BBC, looking forward to it.
